A look back on summer 2018, Part 1.

It is with a certain degree of melancholy, I find myself looking back through the picture library for some up and coming literature for our clients (watch this space). And that got me to thinking about some of the highlights we have had here at Coniston Off-Road this year, and naturally, I thought it would be nice to share some of these with you.
